Kind of like a half-moon violin case, except with bumps. (Maybe its a half-cumulus case?)

If there is a place called Rosineky near Ho Chi Minh City, it might have been made there.

It's like an old Fender "poodle" case.

I love it! The world's first herringbone lump-scroll F-5! Mirror-image headstock, scroll tailpiece, and a Dampit to boot! When that tramp steamer docked in Spokane, mandolin history was made...

With regard to the case, it's better-looking than the ones I build.

Later: forgot to add my appreciation for the "Gibson strings and Martin pick." That makes it better than either Gibson or Martin!
